CRISP - Sustainable Resettlement and Complementary Pathways Initiative
A Resource Platform for Capacity Building and Partnerships
About the CRISP
The Sustainable Resettlement and Complementary Pathways Initiative or CRISP, is a crucial tool to implement the actions identified under the Strategy. It is a UNHCR-IOM led initiative that aims to support States and key stakeholders to establish, expand or renew resettlement programmes and advance complementary pathways of admission. The CRISP provides targeted capacity building in partnership with diverse actors, including Champion States, to achieve quality, scalable and sustainable programmes. The CRISP is also a tangible way for States to support the expansion of third country solutions and make concrete contributions and pledges towards the objectives of the Global Compact on Refugees.
This website aims to be a resource platform for capacity building and partnerships. It also gives a statistical overview of refugees that were processed under the CRISP as well as the UNHCR-IOM joint mechanism, the Emerging Resettlement Countries Joint Support Mechanism (ERCM) that ran from 2016-2019.
